Description of Uvex variotronic s - white orange / variotronic - Glasses
The future right in front of your eyes
uvex revolutionises bike glasses with a trend-setting glass technology that adapts to rapidly changing lighting conditions automatically or with the press of a button. This is made possible by a laminate of liquid crystals with electrochromatic activation through by a photocell light sensor. It reacts to the current intensity of light and regulates the tint of the glass in a split second. The uvex variotronic is available as the Sports Shield for cyclists, and as the full frame version optimized for mountain bikers.
Sudden blindness in a dark tunnel on the speedy downhill race? Stopping to change glasses because all at once, the trail has disappeared into the dusky pine forest? Or simply donŽt want to carry a change of glasses? The revolutionary high tech development by uvex is the solution: In just the blink of an eye, the new uvex variotronic s glasses adapt the tint of the glasses to the lighting conditions of the environment. This is made possible by the interaction of integrated light sensor with a specifically developed liquid crystal foil with electrochromatic activation that tints or clears the glasses in a matter of seconds, automatically or manually by pressing a button. The light setting has a light transmission of 64%, while the tinted glass only allows 16% light to pass through. The advantage is clear to see: The technology provides you with more safety and self-confidence in demanding situations and enables top performances even with changing light conditions. The variotronic s bike glasses are powered by a rechargeable, integrated accumulator with 50h operating duration. The revolutionary etint glass technology is part of an exclusive cooperation between uvex and the US-specialist AlphaMicron.
